The Best Part of Princess Jellyfish

princess-jellyfish-girls-only-anime-club-36979471-1280-720Normally I try not to write about a show until I have finished watching it. That way I have a full grip on what is going on with the story, and how the characters have evolved. This year has seen many exceptions to that rule and has caused me to just throw it out altogether. Because why wait to write about a show if there is something going on at this exact point in time that I need to talk about. This does not apply to reviews, of course, because you need to finish it to do those. I have not finished Princess Jellyfish but there are a few things that I need to talk about, and why not do it for Day 5 of 12 Days of Anime? So, today I want to talk about my favorite part of Princess Jellyfish as of now since I have not finished watching it yet.

2017 Changed My Opinion of Idol Shows

giphyOne kind of anime that I have never really been able to get into no matter how hard I try was idol shows. I would hear my friends, and fellow bloggers, mention how much they love shows like the iDOLM@STER franchise or Love Live! and they seemed interesting to me, but I was always reluctant to try them. I was not sure if it was the fact that they were girl groups and I was more interested in a boy band feel, or something else. I always liked the idea of these shows. The idea of following either a single person or a group of them as they try to become idols and make names for themselves. Watching them grow as people and idols, and see how it changed the way they lived was something that seemed really interesting to me. So, I decided to go ahead and try some of the shows that I thought I might like.

Today for Day 4 of 12 Days of Anime we are going to follow my little journey and how a certain show from this year changed how I feel about idol shows.

The Suspense of Attack on Titan Season 2

84177lThe title of this post also has a double meaning because it pertains not only to the suspense that exists within this season of Attack on Titan, but also the suspense that surrounded when it was going to come out or if it was going to come out at all. I have had a lot of mixed emotions since season two came out. There were things that I liked and things that I did not like. Today I wanted to talk about a sequel that was probably one of the most anticipated anime of the year, and the most talked about before, during, and after it aired. Was it what we wanted? Not exactly. Was there not enough Levi? Definitely not! I guess this is just me ranting even more about a show that I have a lot of feelings about, and just need to get them out. What better way to end the year than to vent your frustrations, right? Have to get it over with now because next year we will have season 3 to worry about. A topic that will probably be brought up this time next year. It really is a never-ending cycle.

Why I Also Love MMO Junkie

eeaaaef7973bb2c0e872ab77f9fd0f931503763220_fullWhen I decided to do 12 Days of Anime there were three posts that I knew I wanted to do. I also happened to choose them as the topics for the first three days because I knew that they would come to me the easiest. I guess what I am trying to get to here is that I have been waiting to write this post since I started watching this show, and now I am going to, again, fangirl to you about how much I love this show. It has truly been a gift to us this Fall 2017 Season and was a show that I did not think I would enjoy as much as I did. Recovery of an MMO Junkie, Net-ju no Susume, whichever you want to call it was a show that, on the surface, may not seem like show of the year material. However, you quickly learn that this is a sweet story about miscommunication, a 30-year-old woman trying to discover who she is, and the wonderful virtual life she creates for herself with her friends there.

There’s gonna be spoilers so if you haven’t watched/finished it yet I’d stop now. You can come back later I completely understand.

Why I Love Yuri!! on ICE

cunbypkwgaanibcHello everybody and welcome to my post for Day 1 of 12 Days of Anime! I have never done this before and am looking forward to the challenge of posting every day. We will see how it goes. Today we will be talking about the things I love about Yuri on Ice (as you can probably guess), and basically just me fangirling for an entire post.

Now that I think about it, maybe it would be a much shorter post if I listed the things I do not love about Yuri on Ice. Because then it would be just a sentence of me saying “nothing I loved it all”, but what fun would that be?

Is Anime Better With or Without Source Material?

Hey everyone, I am back with a question that I have searched the debts of my anime/meme/Criminal Minds/nerd filled brain to find answer to, and honestly I cannot tell you if we will get to an answer by the end of this post. Who knows, we will see. This post came about because of one simple thing…the new Free! anime, and I know what you’re saying if you follow me on Twitter: “Yes Ka-chan we know you’re excited. We get it. Let’s move on! How is this relevant?”

5 Places In Anime I’m Thankful I Don’t Live In

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Americans out there, and a happy Thursday to everyone else!! I wanted to do a little post to celebrate today. I knew I had two options. 1. An emotional and warm post about actual things I’m thankful for in life. 2. A somewhat silly post about things I’m thankful I do not have to deal with. If you know me (or just read the title) then you already know which one I am going to pick. So here is a silly little post about five places in anime that I am thankful I do not have to live in on this day of thanks.

Let’s get started shall we?

Fall 2017 Anime

I am back again, and so soon as well, that it is the time of the year where everyone gives you a heads up of what they are going to watch this season. I am no exception to that whatsoever. While last season felt like of….meh to me, I am looking forward to some of the shows we are getting this season. A few especially that I have heard many good things about and cannot wait to get my hands on. I know as of right now some shows having already started airing (which doesn’t help the fact that I already feel like I’m behind) but I have not started anything as of right now. As I type this at 1:30 on 10/5/17. Anyway, let’s get right into the shows I’ll be watching this season and why I decided to give them a shot. There’s also a special list at the end for some show, but you will have to stick around until then to see what they are. 

Okay I’m rambling now. Let’s get started!!

Summer 2017 Wrap-Up

Wrap-ups are back! Wrap-ups are back! I feel like I have not written one of these in such a long time. Almost a year I think!

What an….interesting season this has been. Some shows that I thought I would really enjoy I ended up not really feeling motivated to get past the first episode. Other shows that I did not think I would like, and maybe were not the best, ended up being the ones that I looked forward to week after week. It was definitely an interesting season that we can now, for the most part, put behind us and move on to the Fall Season that is coming up. 

Here is my Wrap-Up for Summer 2017!!
